KTVL - Representative Greg Walden talks about accomplishments in veterans programs

Representative Greg Walden spoke at Worksource Rogue Valley Tuesday afternoon about the latest efforts in helping homeless veterans.

He spoke about a program for veterans that was approved for an amount of funding, that has never happened before.

Through Walden's efforts and 75 other members in Congress, they were able to fully fund the Homeless Veterans Reintegration program at 50 million dollars.

Programs like EasterSeals, that has a branch in Medford, will benefit from this funding.

Last year EasterSeals placed 68 of the 95 homeless veterans with jobs with a starting salary of $12.14 an hour.
